Trump whines about the ‘dark days’ of the recession in Fox News op-ed — but doesn’t mention recent acts of terrorism

Published

In a Fox News op-ed, President Donald Trump touted job growth and a fear of the “dark days” of the recession as reasons people should vote for GOP candidates — but failed to mention the multiple acts of far-right domestic terrorism that took place in the US in recent weeks.

“For many Americans, the Great Recession brought dark days we will never forget – and never want to repeat,” Trump began in the editorial published Monday afternoon on the network’s website.

He went on to write that “thanks to Republican leadership,” Americans finally have “hope.”

Trump touted the 250,000 jobs added to the economy “in the last month alone.”

He did not mention that in October, a Floridian who is obsessed with him allegedly sent pipe bombs to multiple prominent Democrats and a man who raved online about the “migrant caravan” the president keeps bringing up shot and killed 11 people in a Pittsburgh synagogue.

“African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, and Asian-Americans have the best job prospects in history,” the president wrote. “The employment outlook for women is the best in more than 65 years.”

After criticizing Democrats and claiming they would “take a giant wrecking ball to your economy and your future” if they gain majorities in Congress, the president implored readers to vote for the GOP.

“With your vote, we will keep lifting millions of our citizens from welfare to work, dependence to independence, and poverty to prosperity,” Trump concluded. “And together, we will build a future of safety, security, prosperity, and freedom for all our citizens.”

During a press conference last month, President Donald Trump brought several corporate bigwigs with him to announce that major retailers Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, and Target would all be making their parking lots available to set up drive-through COVID-19 testing centers.

"The goal is for individuals to be able to drive up and be swabbed without having to leave your car," the president said.

It's been nearly three weeks since that announcement, however, and CNN reports that companies have only set up five of these testing centers in the United States so far -- and that none of them are available to the general public.

In her latest column, Swisher writes that her mother for the past few weeks largely kept going about her daily life as though there weren't a deadly pandemic raging across the country. Swisher became so concerned for her mother's safety that she frantically called and texted her to the point where her mother told her to knock it off.
